Fun Batik Workshops for the Public
Every sheet of myBatik’s distinctive hand-painted batiks requires the most painstaking selection of materials and flawless skills. Dedicated to manufacture eco-friendly and zero-harm products, myBatik endeavours to customise products with customers who decide what themes, concepts, and even sizes their interior furnishings will be. For this exhibition, myBatik has invited an up and coming batik painter, Haikal who will demonstrate for visitors his superb painting skills and the hand-making process during the exhibition. Visitors can hand-paint their own batik painting under the guidance by the artist to create their unique story.
“Most of the young generation do not possess batik knowledge and the chance to view batik making process, so for this Hari Raya, myBatik hopes to connect with them through public batik demonstrations. We sincerely hope the public will have a better understanding of and interest in Malaysian batik. A profound interest in the art by the public is essential to ensure a better future for Malaysian batik,” said Emilia Tan, founder and Managing Director of myBatik.
